Returns True if any of the values of its input evaluate as True.
function any ( logical_array : logical ) return_val  : logical
A logical array of any dimensionality.
The any function returns a single logical scalar value if any of the non-missing value elements of the logical_array parameter are True or can be evaluated as True.
This function is useful for changing multidimensional results from logical expressions into a single scalar value, which is required by the if statement. All numeric values can be coerced to a logical value. Values that are 0 are interpreted as False and values that are non-zero are interpreted as True.
Use the all function if you want True to be returned only if all of the input evaluates as True.
